Read the First 3 Chapters of Curtis’ Playground

EW has the first three chapters of Playground, Curtis Jackson’s foray into the teen/street-lit market, available for your review.

The book tells the story of a 13 year old bully named Butterball and is loosely based on Boo-Boo’s own childhood. Check out the book’s intro below.

I’ll be the first to admit that not everything I’ve done in my life has been role-model material. I’ve been on the wrong side of the law. I’ve been in violent situations. I’vealso been a bully. I know how a person gets to be likethat. That’s why I wanted to tell this story: to show a kid who has become a bully—how and why that happened,and whether or not he can move past it.

Writing Playground was a personal journey for me.There’s a lot of me in Butterball. I drew on events that happened in my childhood and adolescence as well as things I saw around me. I also tapped into some of the feelings I remember having at that age—feelings aboutmy family, feelings about my future, feelings about other kids on the playground.Living life on the edge has taught me a lot, like the fact that being mentally strong will get you ahead in life. But being a bully won’t get you anywhere. Some kids don’t figure that out until it’s too late. Does Butterball? You’ll have to read the book to find out.

    Balling>>tricking>>simping(whatever the fuck that is)

    If you got real paper(millions) you balling,you aint tripping off buying no purses,drinks,shoes,trips….that’s peanuts.

    Broke niggas take issue with tricking cuz that shit hurt they pockets. That’s why bad bitches avoid broke niggas. The only way abroke nigga can have a bad bitch is if you got the gifft of gab to pull her,then slay her with some good dick.

    I dont recognize all that other bullshit.
